Android users can now experience the convenience that iPhone and Blackberry users have had for some time: to easily find UPS drop-off locations, create PDF shipping labels, and track packages from a simple interface.

The UPS Mobile App is now available for Android phones, allowing users to quickly and easily enter a UPS tracking number and see the progress of the package shipment. That's the main draw to the app, but it has other functionality as well.

For example, My UPS users can log into their account and see their address book, view account history, and even create PDF shipping labels that can be e-mailed to anyone.

It also comes with a search feature that shows where the nearest UPS drop-off locations are. This program is nearly identical to similar versions that have already hit the iPhone and Blackberry app stores.

Although its install base is greater than the iPhone and its demographic is more far-reaching than Blackberry, Android always seems to be the last on the list for mobile developers. It's an issue that continues to plague Google's mobile OS.
